Subject: Drums. yes, drums
Very good energy and superior clarity in recording. Played loud enough on a good sound system one easily separates all the different toys a percussionist gets to play with. I like these earlier forays into the drums/space theme before it became overextended excuse to chase the dragon midway through the set.
A bounding Eyes seems to leave the Fat Man breathless as he can barely spit lyrics out before tearing into another solo. No brakes on this machine.
Overall a really fluid show without a bunch of delays in tuning and dinking around. Well worth the listen, especially the Matrix format.
My first review-Wheeee!
I was in the mood for an 80's "It's All Over Now". I warmed up with "Ramble on Rose", soundin' good. Then just what the doctor ordered. A smokin' version of "It's All Over Now". That song sounds fun to play.
Now I'm smiling, no need to look around the rest of the night.
The thing is this show has a mix that is very easy on the ears. It's like all the players have their volume set 'just exactly perfect', the instruments tones just sort of bloom.
This show would be great played on a reel-to-reel or vinyl through a tube amp. Wheeee!!

Ball buster of a show. That second set seriously stomps on the proverbial terra. The mountain right across the valley from myself is on actually on fire, too. Nice bonus.....
Subject: Finally, Crystal-Clear, Out-Front Bobby In The Mix
Little more needs to be said about this remarkable show in terms of musical performance
The sound has an extremely "precise"
quality that is all too often missing in the best
soundboards. Every instrument is cleanly separated
and isolated. Weir is easy to follow and this
recording provides a great opportunity to study his art.
Interestingly, the relative proportions of the
various channels (very democratic, extremely atypical of Healy and Cutler) and the almost "hygienic" aural imagery are quite evocative of Owsley's mixing and editing style.
Subject: First tape I had
The second set of this was the first dead boot tape I ever had, also the first sb tape I had, and is what really brought me to love live dead.
Listening again today, I see why this is still one of the best shows I've ever heard. The scarlet=>fire is somking hot, est/eyes is great, uncle/truckin is great, and the morning dew is sublimely beautiful.
Thank you, archivists.
Subject: The Scarlet-Fire
The show overall is very solid. It is the Scarlet-Fire, though, that blows me away. I am a fan of this combination so have heard many. This version is incredible, maybe the best I have ever listened to. Highly recommend.
Subject: Really good...
...especially once the band gets cooking somehwere in the middle of the first set. The second set, particularly out of space, really rocks. The sound however is not "A No. 1." Early the vocals are washed out, but the recording does seem to improve. Of course, I am being nit picky here (but I was just listening to the Aud of one of the October Frost shows from this year, which is perfect)...this is a very good source. And a border line great show.
Subject: Great Stuff
Just a smokin show with everyone soundeding tight as ever! Great show!! Must listen!
Subject: Turn it up to 11
Wow this show completely rocks and is perfect if your lookin for something that won't let you stand still. The Matrix mix is excellent and is probably one of the best examples of the potential of this format, well done. What a show. Wish I was there. Get it, nuff said.
